Population Health Management
Healthcare organisations can advance the quality of healthcare by developing a greater understanding of health and disease within specific community groups. Trending insights, based on variables such as age and geography, enable decision makers to plan health services more effectively and introduce health intervention strategies to manage illness and chronic conditions. Information on the health status of specific populations helps organisations identify and address healthcare disparities between social groups, improve the continuum of healthcare and balance the cost of care delivery.
